The only place I know of is here in Canada at Busy Bee Tools, that's where I got mine. They have a few sizes to choose from and I think they do mail order cross border.

Grizzly and Busy Bee are related by blood so lots of what Busy Bee carry are also sold by Grizzly. They seem to have similar parting tools.

They are really short on specifications. I can't even tell of it's a GTN2 or 3.

That's good that Grizzly carries them. Steve, perhaps an email to Glanze directly will answer which insert style it is.

I was looking at the other one.

It says 3/32", which works out to 2.4mm, so neiher a GTN2 nor GTN3

Blade has to be thinner than the insert for clearance. So GTN 3 should be 3MM wide right?

There actually are GTN2.4 inserts.

An ad popped up today for msc selling gtn2.4 inserts. Google is really smart.
